Get a ticket for Burning Issues, our Sisters in Crime discussion event!
Australia’s recent unprecedented bushfire season highlighted the power of fire and the damage it can cause. Writers Chloe Hooper, Kimberley Starr and Leisl Leighton talk with Maggie Baron about how their crime books get up close and personal with arson and bushfires, and confront some of the most uncomfortable realities of life in this sunburnt country. Find more information about the event and panelists on our website: Burning Issues.
As you might have guessed, all of Clan Destine Press' events will be canceled for now.
We'd love to stay in touch other ways too, so feel free to email us, or leave a comment on our blog, which we update several times a week.
Thank you and take good care.
